Press Review

Media of luxury RESERVOIR watch in jet, charcoal black shades.
“Vintage cars and watches share a similar appeal, both delivering strongly on style, but with just as much going on under the hood. But beyond the objects themselves, they speak to a lifestyle of adventure, freedom and the joy of the open road. Reservoir’s creations tap into this dream, with nods to some of the most iconic motors of past and the legendary racers at their wheel. With its Kanister timepiece, the watchmaker takes its cues from the speedometer of the 356 Speedster sports car. ”

“RESERVOIR Sonomaster Chronograph : Revue vidéo exclusive d’une montre hors normes. Continuant à s’inspirer des instruments de mesure, RESERVOIR change néanmoins de registre en dévoilant la Sonomaster : un chronographe inédit inspiré des VU-mètres doté de complications réjouissantes.”

Les audiophiles ont-ils la fibre nostalgique ? Depuis l’avènement de la révolution numérique, désirons-nous tout simplement renouer avec les émotions provoquées par la manipulation de beaux objets ? Sortir un vinyle de sa pochette, vérifier l’absence de poussière puis le positionner avec délicatesse sur la platine. Mettre sous tension l’ampli et déposer la cellule au début du sillon. Dès les premières notes, la magie opère. Les sons diffusés par les enceintes enveloppent l’espace. Sur la façade du matériel hi-fi des années 1970 et haut de gamme actuel, les aiguilles des VU-mètres (Volume Unit meters) entament leur danse syncopée. L’émotion est visuelle et auditive. Effleurer un bouton, l’enclencher, le manipuler, observer des indicateurs de contrôle. Quel rapport avec l’horlogerie ? Ces gestes simples qui procurent du plaisir et donnent du sens à l’objet se retrouvent aussi dans l’usage des montres, sans équivalent, signées Reservoir.

“In an era when all the rage is about vintage-inspired racecars and the reiteration of life’s classics, French watch brand Reservoir, which offers Swiss-made watches, deftly reinterprets vintage auto gauges of all sorts for spectacular results on the wrist. The newest Kanister is a prime example.”

“En effet, ce qui frappe en premier, ce sont les deux ouvertures en forme d’ouïes disposées de part et d’autre. Vous aurez compris qu’il s’agit là des fameux VU-mètres que nous venons de présenter. Et pour le coup, il ne s’agit pas de n’importe quel VU-mètre. En fait, la Sonomaster est directement inspirée d’une légende du genre, j’ai nommé l’ampli Luxman M10 Mk II.”

“For any Generation X audiophile, a VU meter was a must-have when it came to home Hifi. The slim needle on these analogue ‘Volume Unit’ meters would flick across the dial in relation to the music, and now the classic gauge style has been reproduced in the Reservoir Sonomaster Chronograph. (…) Inspired by the likes of the legendary LuxmanM10 Mk II power amplifier, the Sonomaster Chronograph is one of the most evocative, nostalgia-inspired timepieces on the market.”

“Reservoir has dropped its first chronograph which takes its design language from vintage analogue audio equipment. The 43mm Reservoir Sonomaster Chronograph features two horizontal retrograde scales on either side of its dial, measuring seconds and date, echoing the two VU meters found on the Luxman M10 MkII stereo amplifier, with its black needles against cream dials.”
